Glossary for Paresthesias in children
Medical terms related to Paresthesias in children or mentioned in this section include:
- Amyloid Neuropathies: A peripheral nerve disorder caused by abnormal amyloid deposits in the nerves. Sensory, autonomic or motor nerves may be affected. The degree of nerve involvement, and hence symptoms, are variable.
- Amyloidosis: A disease characterized by the accumulation of insoluble amyloid protein in tissues and organs which in turn affects the functioning of these tissues and organs.
- Body symptoms: Symptoms affecting the entire body features.
- Brain abscess: abscess in the brain may involve any of the lobes of the brain
- Brain symptoms: Symptoms affecting the brain
- Brain tumor: A condition which is characterized by the abnormal growth of tissue within the brain
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: Hand or wrist problems; often from repetitive motion.
- Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease with pyramidal features, autosomal dominant: CMT is an inherited neurological disease characterized by the gradual degeneration of nerves which starts in the hands and feet and results in progressive numbness, muscle weakness and loss of function. Type 5 has an autosomal dominant inheritance, progresses slowly and involves movement disorders.
- Child health symptoms: Symptoms related to pediatric (child) health.
- Common symptoms: The most common symptoms
- Diabetes-like symptoms: Symptoms similar to those of diabetes
- Encephalitis: Infection of the brain (as a symptom)
- HIV/AIDS: HIV is a sexually transmitted virus and AIDS is the progressive immune failure that HIV causes.
- Head symptoms: Symptoms affecting the head or brain
- Head trauma: injury to the haed
- Hypothyroidism: The decreased activity of the thyroid gland
- Lyme disease: Lyme disease is an emerging infectious disease caused by at least three species of bacteria belonging to the genus Borrelia.
- Malnutrition: Any disorder that relates to inadequate intake of nutrients.
- Movement symptoms: Changes to movement or motor abilities
- Multiple Sclerosis: Autoimmune attack on spinal nerves causing diverse and varying neural problems.
- Multiple myeloma: A rare malignant cancer that occurs in the bone marrow. More common in skull, spine, rib cage, pelvis and legs.
- Muscle weakness: Weakness of the muscles or loss of tone
- Musculoskeletal symptoms: Symptoms affecting muscles or bones of the skeleton.
- Nerve entrapment: Compression of a nerve that becomes trapped in a confined space due to any cause e.g. trauma, inflammation or a disease process. This usually occurs near joints. The resulting pressure on the nerve can be very painful and if left untreated can result in damage to the nerve and eventually muscle weakness and wasting. Conditions such as bone spurs, joint swelling due to injury, cysts and trauma can result in nerve entrapment. The exact symptoms will depend on which nerve is trapped and the duration and severity of the entrapment.
- Nerve symptoms: Symptoms affecting the nerves
- Neurological symptoms: Any symptoms that are caused by neurological conditions
- Numbness of both elbows: Numbness of both elbows refers to the loss or reduction of sensation in the elbows.
- Pain: Any type of pain sensation symptoms.
- Paresthesias: Tingling, prickling, numbness or burning sensations
- Peripheral neuropathy: Any loss in the function of the peripheral nervous system
- Porphyria: A group of disorders characterized by excess production of porphyrin or its precursors which affects the skin and/or nervous system.
- Possible human carcinogenic exposure -- Metronidazole: Some evidence indicates that exposure to Metronidazole has a possible link to an increased risk of developing cancer in humans. The carcinogenicity of the substance may be influenced by the duration and level of exposure. Metronidazole is a drug used to treat certain bacterial and parasitic infections.
- Rheumatoid arthritis: An autoimmune inflammatory condition which primarily affects the joints
- Sensations: Changes to sensations or the senses
- Sensory symptoms: Symptoms affecting the sensory systems.
- Sjogren's Syndrome: Autoimmune disease damaging the eye tear ducts and other glands.
- Skin problems: Any condition that affects the skin
- Skin symptoms: Symptoms affecting the skin.
- Stroke symptoms: Brain-related symptoms of bleeding or blockage.
- Subacute combined degeneration of the spinal cord: Gradual spinal cord degeneration
- Syphilis: A sexually transmitted disease caused by a bacteria (Treponema pallidum). The condition is often asymptomatic in the early stages but one or more sores may be present in the early stages. Untreated syphilis usually results in remission of visible symptoms but further severe damage may occur to internal organs and other body tissues which can result in death.
- Systemic lupus erythematosus: chronic autoimmune disease that can be fatal, though with recent medical advances, fatalities are becoming increasingly rare.
- Transverse myelitis: Inflammation of the spinal cord which results in various neurological and muscle symptoms. The inflammation can occur for no obvious reason or may result from a virus, bacterial infection, autoimmune disease or vaccination. The type and severity of symptoms is determined by the location and degree of inflammation.
- Uremia: Build up of toxins usually excreted by the kidneys, associated with real failure in a woman who is pregnant.
- Vincristine -- Teratogenic Agent: There is evidence to indicate that exposure to Vincristine during pregnancy and even the during the year leading up to the pregnancy may have a teratogenic effect on the fetus. A teratogen is a substance that can cause birth defects. The likelihood and severity of defects may be affected by the level of exposure and the stage of pregnancy that the exposure occurred at.
- Vitamin B12 Deficiency: A deficiency of Vitamin B12 primarily causes anemias the body is unable to make sufficient quantities of normal red blood cells. Severe cases can lead to permanent nervous system problems. The vitamin B12 deficiency can result from absorption problems, insufficient dietary intake, certain medications (e.g. metformin), inherited conditions (e.g. transcobalamin deficiency) and certain chronic parasitic intestinal infestations.
- Weakness: Symptoms causing weakness of the body
